Copying Pencils


A precursor to carbon paper, the Gestetner machine, and the photocopier, the copying pencil allowed the duplication of hand created documents. The copying pencil is a bridge between the modern era and the period when copying was not possible. It allows for a single, imperfect, fragile copy, typically on tissue paper, to be taken.

When the ink is wetted it transfers to the surface it touches. It can be used to write on skin by artists and tattooists or simply because of its beautiful purple hue.
The purple lead is cased in an painted cedar wood,  making it resistant and durable.

Produced by Viarco, the older and last pencil maker in Portugal.
